'Tis the season for popsicles, and nothing is better than the handmade variety. Not only can you get super creative and go in for all sorts of fun flavors, but popsicles are a whole lot healthier when you make them at home, sans high fructose corn syrup and weird artificial food dyes. Making popsicles at home saves money, and it's a great way to make use of leftover fruit, veggies and other food that you want use up. It's also a fun activity to engage young kids - it's educational, thrifty and creative - and isn't nearly as complicated, messy or dangerous as cooking, yet still produces the same kind of satisfaction at the end of the process when the whole family gets to enjoy the frozen fruits of their labor. You can easily make healthy homemade popsicles that look as appetizing and professional as the store-bought variety, and taste a heck of a lot better - you just need to invest in a good, sturdy popsicle mold set (or 3).
